Major Cryptos Stage Mini Reversal but Still Far from Redeeming Lost Value
The last 24 hours have seen the likes of Bitcoin gaining about 5% of its value to trade at $20,107, and Ethereum surging by 9% to trade at $1,148. These could not be sustained as major cryptos, Bitcoin and Ethereum, are currently 1.9% and 5% up respectively. The rest of the assets also saw a mini-rally with BNB recording a 3% surge to trade at $238 in the last 24 hours, Solana surged by 3% ($34), Polygon by 10% ($0.5), Uniswap by 8% ($5), XRP by 0.3% ($0.3), Cardano by 0.74% ($0.45), and Avalanche by 2.8% ($17) according to CoinMarketCap.
The mini-rally recorded in the last 24 hours is believed to have been caused by the positive movement in Total Value Locked across Ethereum as well as improved on-chain activities. The Ethereum TVL increased by 4.47% in the last 24 hours.
Regardless of this mini-rally in the prices of major cryptos, Bitcoin is still over 71% down from its all-time high of nearly $69,000. Ethereum is also over 76% down from its all-time high of near $5,000. According to Coinglass, more than $170 million in liquidations were recorded across the crypto market in the last 24 hours.
Ethereum, interestingly leads the liquidation with around $69 million, followed by Bitcoin and Solana with $45 million and $10 million liquidations respectively over the same period. The majority of these liquidations were said to have come in the way of blown-out short positions. The crypto market has been on a bearish run since the Federal Reserve announced a 75-basis point rate to control inflation.
Glassnode data also discloses that the current momentum was created by the remaining HODLers who have managed to come up with a floor price for the asset as “Bitcoin tourists” are flashed out.
The number of addresses of non-zero Bitcoin balances which declined drastically in May has been on the rise. This specific metric has recorded an all-time high as 42.344 million Bitcoin addresses so far have no zero balance. The last 24hrs saw the trading volume of decentralized exchange rose by 76% to $1.73 billion. NFT sale volume has also increased by 0.48% to $12.9 million in the last 24 hours.
